Health Net And Tenet Healthcare Reach New Agreements Covering 11 California Hospitals

Subsidiaries of Health Net, Inc. (NYSE: HNT) today announced new, multi-year agreements that give Health Net members access to medical care at all 11 Tenet Healthcare hospitals in California.

“We’re pleased Health Net and Tenet Healthcare have been able to reach an agreement that will provide our customers with statewide access to quality health care while preserving affordable benefits,” said Steve Sell, president of Health Net’s Western Region Health Plan.

In addition to covering Tenet Healthcare’s 11 facilities statewide, the new two-year agreements reinstate and retroactively cover Tenet Healthcare’s six Southern California hospitals that were terminated from Health Net’s network on December 22, 2012, as if there was no termination.

The six Southern California Tenet Healthcare hospitals are: Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, Fountain Valley Hospital and Medical Center, JFK Memorial Hospital in Indio, Lakewood Regional Medical Center, Los Alamitos Medical Center, and Placentia-Linda Hospital.

The Northern California Tenet Healthcare hospitals are: Doctors Hospital of Manteca, Doctors Medical Center of Modesto, San Ramon Regional Medical Center, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, and Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton.

Health Net will contact Southern California members, physicians, brokers and consultants to notify them about these new agreements. Health Net commercial members with questions may call Health Net’s Customer Service department at 1-800-522-0088. Medicare members with questions may call 1-800-275-4737. Medi-Cal and Cal-Optima members may contact 1-800-641-7761. Employers, brokers, and consultants with questions should contact their Health Net representative.
